One way copy and sync of a sub-folder between NAS and Server 2003

I have a shared folder on my file server which is a NAS (call it "FileServer").  Within this shared folder is a sub-folder that I need to share with my outside sales team.  (I do not want to share the contents above the sub-folder.)  I have a second server running Windows Server 2003 (call it "xServer") where I would like to create a one directional copy of the sub-folder that will sync any changes in one direction.  I need it to be one directional so that my outside sales team can do what they want to the files and their changes will not get back to the main copy on the NAS.  The outside sales team can only access the xServer and do not have access to the FileServer.  I am running Gladinet Cloud Server Console on the xServer.  What do I need to do here?

Well you could use robocopy with a scheduled task to perform regular sync.
Another option is to use "freefilesync" which is a free, easy to use tool that allows many sync functionalities, including the one you talk of. Also you can schedule it to run every x minutes

I think freefilesync is going to work great.  I'm going to run some tests.

Yeah we use it sometimes and doesn't give any troubles.
Just be sure to monitor it from time to time.

You can use EMCopy

See the syntax and details below
